In a crisis situation, food becomes of paramount importance. No surprise there, but many people don’t think in terms of preparing for a longer term survival situation. Because they focus on surviving the immediate SHTF situation, preppers can be in danger of not making long-term plans to weather out a crisis and of making a livable situation, especially when available land space may be limited, such as a more urban environment.
With that in mind, here are 8 steps and concepts to study and use to maximize the crop yield of whatever available space that you have.
- Deep soil preparation
- Intensive planting
- Companion planting
- Carbon farming
- Calorie farming
- Use of open-pollinated seeds
- Whole system method
You will get more detail about how to use these concepts at this link. You’ll also find a list of the variety of benefits of using these concepts such as lowered use of precious water supplies and a reduced dependence on chemical fertilizers which may not be available in a crisis.
